For a guitarist, this song should be easy. It's sound damn close too, especially
if you have a friend who can play the accordian!

Virginia was a "lot lizard" from F.L.A.
She had a compound fracture in the "trunk"
It started when she ran away

B                 D
Thumbs out on the interstate

("Bb, F" pattern x4)
She hitched a ride to misery


"Mr. Whirly" had a catastrophic incident
He fell into the city by the bay
He liquidated his estate

B                 D
Now he sleeps upon the Haight

("Bb, F" pattern x4)
Panhandling misery


PRE-CHORUS: No guitar, an accordian takes over


He's gonna get high
When he's low
The fire burns from better days
and she screams why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday of misery


VERSE 2: There's really no guitar here. Accordians and such are used instead.
You could use the Verse pattern from above here, but it's not nessicary.


Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam
He ran the drug cartel in "tinseltown"
The found him in a Cadillac
B                 D
Bludgeoned with a baseball bat 
In the name of misery


Gina hit the road to New York City 
Mysteriously the night Vinne Croaked
She stopped in Vegas to elope
B                 D
With Virginia and the dope
And kissed the bride eternally


PRE-CHORUS: No guitar here

And they're gonna get high when they're low
The fire burns from better days
And he screamed why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns of yesterday of misery


BRIDGE:


Hell hounds on your trail now once again..boy
It's groping on your leg until it sleeps
The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow
Because it's now what you make..it's what you leave


[INTERLUDE]

(Accordian Solo)

GUITAR SOLO: Doesnt sound like a guitar, but it's a cool, "Godfatherly" sort of sound
so I tabbed it out. This is pretty close. Just figure out the # of strokes for
yourself. It should be pretty easy.
